Hans Erik Deckert has arranged multiple variations of a single work: Aus tiefer Not is a Lutheran chorale of which the words were written by Martin Luther himself as a paraphrase of Psalm 130. Many composers have set Luther's text to music including, as featured here, Johann Sebastian Bach for cello quintet and cello sextet and Max Reger for cello quintet.
With our first cello release of 2013, editor Hans Erik Deckert explores the work of a more obscure composer: Englishman Frederick Delius. He has chosen a work of great historical significance: Elegy for cello septet.
Roland Pidoux, the French cellist and editor who recently joined Ovation Press back in September, has published a new arrangement. This time around, Pidoux has chosen a relatively unknown gem for all of us: Schubert's Gesang der Geister über den Wassern, arranged for cello octet.
